Matteo Renzi, the new Secretary of the Democratic Party (PD) has said it’s necessary to change Italy’s immigration law.
Addressing the party’s national assembly in Milan on 15th December 2013, Mr. Renzi said abolishing the Bossi-Fini Immigration Law “must be part of the coalition government’s agenda.”
Crying and making big promises after immigrant tragedies then forgetting about everything shortly afterwards is “unacceptable,” Mr. Renzi said.
He stressed that abolition of the Bossi-Fini Immigration Law and approval of birthright citizenship law must be included in the coalition government pact.
Mr. Renzi, who is also the Mayor of Florence, said there was need of reforming the citizenship law to approve a new one that “doesn’t make us feel ashamed.”
